Film screeing open to Denison faculty, students and staff
|Open to Public:||No|
Denison University’s 2nd Annual Middle East Film Festival presents a screening of “Taste of Cement,” directed by Ziad Kalthoum.
A portrait of workers in exile, Kalthoum creates an essay documentary of Syrian construction workers building new skyscrapers in Beirut on the ruins caused by the Lebanese civil war. At the same time their own houses are being bombed in Syria, and a curfew prohibits them from leaving the construction site after work.
Screening is open to the Denison community.
The Denison Community can join the Q&A with director Ziad Kalthoum over Zoom.
